Monday 1st February 2021.
Today in Phonics, we are going to be looking at the new grapheme 'oy'. The phrase we say for 'oy' is "toy for a boy".
First, you need to revisit your phase 3 sounds using the slides below. Next, watch my video of me introducing the sound 'oy' and modelling segmenting and blending 'oy' words. Then, practise reading 'oy' words from the list below. Finally, have a go at reading real and nonsense words by playing the 'picnic and pluto' game by clicking on the picture below.
Today, we are going to practise writing the letters o and r together. The phrase we say is "shut the door".
Watch the video below to see how to form the letters correctly, then practise writing your letters in the air and say the phrase. Then, have a go and write your letters on lined paper.
This week in maths we are going to begin looking at subtraction. Today, I would like you to practise counting backwards from a given number less than 10. For example, your grown up says 8 and then you should say 7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0.
Today, I would like you to look back at the story of Stick Man, using the slides I added last week or the YouTube link. While listening to the story, see if you recognise any rhyming words. After you have listened to the story, have a chat to your grown ups. Then write the pairs of words that rhyme together, for example, jog and dog.
Everyday I am going to set you a fun challenge. Today's challenge is how many star jumps can you do in 1 minute? Ask your grown up to email me your score and I will create a league table below!
You could then see how many star jumps your grown ups and brothers and sister can do!
Tuesday 2nd February 2021.
Today, I would like you to revisit the sound 'oy' that I introduced yesterday. We say "oy" when we see the two letters together o and y. The phrase we say for this grapheme is "toy for a boy."
You have four phonics tasks today:
1: Practise spelling phase 4 tricky words:
2: Read through the 'oy' words on the blue slides below. Talk with your grown up and make sure you know the meaning of each word.
3: Play the 'word sorting' on Phonics Play; click on the last picture and it should take you to the game. If you have an issues logging on the username is: Jan21 and the password is: home
4: Select a word which contains the 'oy' sound and write a sentence containing this word.
Today, we are going to look at subtraction stories and work out how many objects are left?
First, read through the slides below with your grown ups and talk about what the answers could be.
Next, watch the video below where I demonstrate how to solve these subtraction problems.
Finally, I have attached some subtraction stories for you to solve.
Can you draw your story in three parts and write the subtraction sentence to match?
Today, we are going to look our English text Stick Man. I want you to watch the video below which will tell you the story again. Watch carefully because you have a response task after. You will need to answer questions about what you heard.
After that, click on the second video below to play a true and false quiz with me.
Today in R.E, we are going to look back at the story of Jonah and discuss the story in more detail. I would like you to watch the clip below and then discuss the follow questions with your grown up:
The challenge today is to see how long you can balance on one leg. Once you have tried balancing on your right leg, try your left leg. Were you able to balance on one leg longer than the other?

Today in Phonics, we are going to be looking at the new grapheme 'ir'. The phrase we say for 'ir' is "whirl and twirl."
First, you need to revisit your tricky words from Phase 5 using the 'Tricky word truck game'. Click on the picture below and select phase 5a.
Next, watch the video of me introducing the sound 'ir'. Then, I'm modelling segmenting and blending 'ir' words. Next, Practise reading 'ir' words from the list below. Finally, have a go at looking for 'ir' words using the phoneme spotter I have attached below.
Today, we are going to use the subtraction stories from yesterday and draw part, part, whole models.
First, watch the video below where I demonstrate how to draw part, part, whole models for my subtraction stories.
Then, using your story sheets from yesterday have a try to draw your part, part, whole models on paper.
In Science last week you looked at objects and the materials they were made from. This week, I would like you look at the properties of some more objects. The property of an object is what it looks like, what it feels like and what it can do. Watch the video and listen to some of the words to describe properties of materials then, using the activity sheets, have a go at testing the properties of some objects at home. You may need your adult to help you with some of the extension tests.
There is also a 'Material Song' for you to dance along to, have fun with your Science!
Today, I challenge you to see how far you can count to in one go. Once you have counted in 1s, try counting in 2s, 5s or 10s.

Take a look at these problems below. I have added these to print, or you can write your answers on paper.
Ask your Grown ups to read the story of Stick Man to you, using the slides below. After listening to the story, discuss the words below, see if you can come up with any alternative words that could be used in their place.
